I don't understand how you were sending these viruses unless you were
doing it manually, e.g. by forwarding mail from elsewhere. It's
extremely unlikely that the viruses were affecting your own machine.

Does anyone besides me find the term 'abusive sending' inconclusive? Do
they mean that you were sending mails containing viruses (then Patrick's
comment holds true, you must be forwarding mails manually since an
'in-the-wild' virus targetting evolution or any linux mail client
doesn't to the best of my knowledge exist yet) or were you sending large
amounts of mail (spam behaviour)?

The second could be caused by someone else having access to your
machine, for example through ssh (this is disabled by default, unless
you've enabled it for some reason ignore this part).
